Mar 30, 2007 (Mark Puumala) - This occurrence is based on the reported presence of anomalous gold mineralization (grab sample assay of 0.043 oz/ton Au) by Weidner (1987) within mafic metavolcanic rocks in close proximity to an east-northeast-trending lineament. Foliation in the vicinity of the lineament has been mapped by Weidner (1987) to strike approximately parallel to the lineament with steep dips toward the north. Silicification was noted by Weidner (1987) in the vicinity of the east-northeast-trending lineaments. However, no significant sulphide mineralization was reported to be associated with this alteration.
